“This one is pretty much impossible to classify. It’s sort of folksy, but it’s also sort of jazzy. The instrumentation includes trumpet, saxophone, flute, and violin, but it also includes mandolin, acoustic guitar, and tambourine. Some of the song structures are very much folk inspired, but some of them are very much free jazz. I really love the sound of “Showdown,” the fourth track on the disc, for the way the keyboards and the violin blend together to create a very atmospheric sound. “Archangel” is a really interesting track that juxtaposes the quiet calm acoustic folk with guitar buzz and manic trumpet and violin doing the free jazz thing. The whole disc sort of walks that fine line between folk and free jazz, and that really grabs my attention. It sort of reminds me of the Dirty Three, in a way, a really interesting Trio from back in the 90s. Good stuff here.”
